Natalie Dower’s second solo exhibition with the Eagle Gallery draws from a career  of over 40 years, and presents recent paintings hung in counterpoint to selected historic works.

Dower’s approach to working within systems of constructivism and geometric art  has always been individual. A friend and contemporary of painters including Malcolm  Hughes and Jean Spencer, Dower’s work is defined by its strong colour sense and an experimental use of materials including Perspex, Avonite and nylon. Her methods extend a purely ‘systematic’ approach - surface and texture are as important an aspect to the works as are their particular mathematical starting points.

The exhibition casts a retrospective eye back to the 1980s with a selection of intricate reliefs that have not been shown since exhibitions in the ’90s at the Curwen Gallery, hung alongside a series of ‘hybrid’ images, and canvases from the past two years.

A catalogue with text by Laurence Noga was published for the exhibition.
